What was the most interesting question?

"There weren't any particularly interesting questions asked. The interviewers basically just wanted to get to know you. The student interviewer asked me: What do you see as the biggest non-medical problem in the world today? He also asked me what the biggest problem in healthcare was in the United States. However, most of the questions were just to get to know me and to get a feel of my personality. Both my interviews lasted over the 25 minute time allotment. That was good because I didn't run out of things to say, and both interviewers seemed to really love talking to me. They found my personality very interesting. " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"nothing really" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I looked over my AMCAS application, did a mock interview with my advisor, and looked at this site to see what kinds of questions were asked by interviewers at GW." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"EVERYTHING! DC is fantastic. The hospital facilities were really technologically advanced. The students were really nice. They love the non-competitive environment in which all students help everyone else to do well. The faculty members were very friendly and answered all my questions about the school. GW is an excellent school, in an excellent location with excellent people!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The cost to attend GW is really expensive but so is any other medical school. You'll run into that anywhere you go unless you attend a state supported school in which you are a resident of that state. Housing is not provided at GW, which means you have to find an apartment in DC. However, this didn't really bother me too terribly much. Apartments are expensive in all the big cities, so you'll run into that problem as well. Overall, I have no complaints about GW. I would love to go there!!!! Outstanding school and excellent city to live in!" Report Response
